Today I Love This Fire Swept Sky

My morning's fire swept sky ...

Today I love this fire swept sky and the beauty of the predawn day. I love the feel of this morning outside, cool and inviting. I love that the air outside tastes sweet and easy to breathe. I love that the morning is calling me to come out and see what the night has changed, who is in bloom, who is fading, who passed through my...

Today I Love Big Water

Coffee in the living room

Today I love big water and the fact that I live in a coastal town on Georgian Bay. I love that so many people call Owen Sound "The Sound" even though it is not a sound at all. I love that there is water in any direction that I go and that Southwestern Ontario is technically an island. I love that if I wanted to, I could actually...

Today I Love This Room Full Of Sunlight

Sunlight on its way into the house

Today I love this room full of sunlight spread like butterscotch over walls and floor. I love this lazy August Saturday morning, the calm and easy way it started, the feel of the freedom of summer in the moment, the taste of the air of these halcyon days. I love that there is work waiting for me to do but I feel confident and calm about...

Today I Love Surprise Friday

The blue, blue sky ...

Today I love surprise Friday and how it snuck up on me. I love that yesterday I was sure it was Wednesday, and even after I "discovered" it was Thursday yesterday afternoon, I still couldn't get my heart to believe that 'til later in the evening. I love that instead of feeling like I've lost a day, I've decided to just go with gaining an extra weekend...

Today I Love This Change Of Pace

Coffee at my desk

Today I love this change of pace. I love that I slept for nine hours. I love that I am looking back on eleven days of fun and that I feel kind of sorry for people who only get to experience two and a half days of Summerfolk. I love that I'm looking at putting away my tools for a while and pretending that they don't exist, imagining myself...

Today I Love Happy Endings

Off to work

Today I love happy endings. I love that today we hope to finish Summerfolk tear down. I love all the pictures that I've seen of the past weekend that have been posted online, and I love imagining all the photos out there that have been posted online by the thousands of people who came to our folk festival. I love that my band played the open stage....

Today I Love The Morning’s Slanting Sunlight

Sliding slanted sunlight

Today I love the morning's slanting sunlight sliding silently in across my keyboard, making all the keys look like giants with their long shadows reaching around and past their neighboring keys. I love the richness of the golden light as it paints the sides of trees and buildings with transparent golden brown honey, enough to make the colors look rich, but never enough to obscure. I love that I got...

Today I Love This Perplexing Monday

Another sunny day ...

Today I love this perplexing Monday with its lack of crowds and its quiet distant roar of people going places that make no sense to my mind. I love that just yesterday all the world seemed engaged in the Summerfolk 41 festival. I love that I am determined to make it through another year of life to be at Summerfolk 42. I love that for me, this one...
